Today on Your Call: What is the most effective message for abortion rights supporters?

abortion_rights.jpg

On today's Your Call, we'll talk about the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride. A group of abortion rights activists are currently traveling to battle ground states with very few clinics. Their message is: "Abortion on demand and without apology." But groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL steer clear of that language. The last few years have seen a record number of abortion restrictions, so what is the best way to protect this constitutional right?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Liza Fuentes, board member of the Reproductive Health Technologies Project

David Gunn, Jr, son of David Gunn, Sr., the first abortion doctor to be assassinated by an anti-abortion gunman; organizer for the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride; and blogger for Abortion.ws.

Deb Hauser, president and executive director of Advocates for Youth, a national nonprofit that champions programs and advocates for policies that help young people make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health

Charlotte Taft, director of the Abortion Care Network, an organization for independent providers and abortion care allies
